Patriots coach Bill Belichick said the team won’t alter its approach to game-planning because Randy Moss is no longer around.

In a Monday afternoon conference call with reporters, Belichick said that even though Moss has been traded to Minnesota, “I think we’ll still be using the same playbook.”

Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork checked in with the Dale & Holley show as he does every week as part of WEEI's Patriots Monday. Wilfork called Moss a "great teammate," adding: "[Everybody in] the locker room loved him. There aren't too many people that don't like him."

 

As for why Moss was traded, Wilfork said: "Classic case of business being business. Sometimes you forget about the business part of it. But that's all it was about."

The Cincinnati wide receiver told the Associated Press that New England’s decision to trade Moss to Minnesota should be a signal to every other player around the league that they are “expendable.”
